silhouette stuff and a gift

Saw this awesome Silhouette dust cover tutorial the other day and made it lickety split. She’s not kidding when she says it takes 15 minutes! I bought the hedgehog fabric not knowing what I’d do with it but I thought it was so cute!

Bonus: now I get to see it every day!

I stitched a little felt heart on as well. aww…

Speaking of my Silhouette, I made this little sign the other day, with my favorite sewing saying on it. I hung it above my inspiration board, and love it! The sewing machine could stand to be a little smaller probably, but it’s one of those things I will probably never change. lol. It just doesn’t bug me enough.

While I’ve got a captive audience….let’s take a peek to the left of my inspiration board (or twine hangy thingy) and see the gift my sister Joanna gave me last Christmas! It’s a dry erase board, made with a picture frame, ribbon, and cute scrapbook paper. Totally cute, right?

I gotta tell you the story…when she heard she had me for the handmade gift (our family draws names for different types of gifts)…she was nervous cause apparently, my family calls me the crafty queen (among other names, I’m sure, lol) behind my back. No idea why.

She thinks she’s “not crafty”, but I know her better, and told her she’d do awesome at whatever she made! Obviously, she did! I just want to say, don’t be afraid to make something for a crafter or sewer you might know! They are just happy to receive something they didn’t have to make! Trust me on this one. ;D

P.S. there’s more on my to do list than just dresses, believe me, but this is the FUN to do list!


  1. I love that hedgehog print!
    Can’t wait to see you do pillowcase dresses! I am working on one of the same style right now (just not using a pillow case since my 7 month old is only in 3 month clothes) and I’m planning on putting the hearts on it you showed us in all you need is love week!

  2. Ok, the cover is adorable…perfect use for the hedgehogs. So happy to see your fun little inspiration board and cute gift. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. That dry erase board is awesome! What did she cover the scrapbook paper with?

    (I totally need one.)

  4. That is so cute! I love that fabric!

    *kate – It looks like it was made with a picture frame and scrapbook paper was put inside instead of a photo. You can use glass as a dry erase board too!

  5. Love the hedgehog print! That dry erase board is awesome and classy. Makes me rethink my trepidation after college dry erase boards. . . .

  6. Cuteness overload!! That cover is so adorable =)

  7. 1. That hedgehog fabric is adorable. Especially with the big red heart on it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    2. I love your “inspiration board” (and the things that are on it).

    3. That dry erase board is SO adorable. Love that classic/clean design. Lucky you to receive such an awesome gift!

    4. I am totally with you on receiving handmade things from others. Amen.

  8. love love love the sign! I have the same saying in vinyl on the wall of my sewing room! Great job!

  11. Ooh – I need a sign like that! What really caught my eye though was the dress sketch on your to do list – it’s a very similar idea to one I made a few months ago! I’ll just pretend that I’m so cutting edge that I beat you to it, hehehe! Can’t WAIT to see how you make it up!

    (Oh, and the deleted comment above was me – didn’t realise till it appeared that the computer was still signed in as my son – teenagers!)

  12. wow that fabric is awesome!!!! I saw the tutorial the other day and am planning on making a cover for my cricut but it will join my HUGE to do list with sewing machine cover, serger cover, quilt to finish……………………………………………….
